I have one idea for an industry that may be in need of these materials. The fuel cell industry is growing quickly, and there are a number of competing technologies for the manufacture of the proton exchange membrane (PEM). I know that there was interest in using either conductive thermoplastics or thermoset materials to form the plates. Because of the extreme tolerance requirements, the tooling for this products would need to be something significantly more dimensionally stable than traditional approaches.

Good Luck!
